-   -   A1 New CF Card - Not recognizeable. (

Willyjeen Jun 5, 2004 9:10 PM


I was shooting with my A1 this morning and everything was working fine.

I went out and bought a SanDisk 256 Ultra II - SDCFH (compatible per Canon's website) and inserted it into my camera this evening. The camera states that Card is Not Recognized. In addition, I try to format the card to the camera, but the format menu option is greyed out and won't let me go there.

I put my old card back in to see if it was just the new card, and this card is now unrecognizable as well!!! Argh!

Has anybody else experienced this and is there a manual fix that I can do at home? either via my computer or something else?

NEVERMIND. My Minolta miraculously likes the card now.

testy little bugger

Perhaps you have some dust lodged in the contacts since it was both cards - if the problem comes back - try spraying some compressed air into the card slot (compressed air is sold in small cans at most computer and office supply stores).
